Evidenced-Based Programs and the Value of Community Partnerships
Published by Minnesota Physical Therapy Association

Over the last decade, there has been a significant increase in the efforts to better understand how education, and promotion of activity, can be used to improve target population health and decrease the risk of avoidable injury. As educators, advocates, and providers of care, physical therapists, and physical therapy assistants are in an excellent position to not only promote individual health but optimize community wellness. By understanding target populations, learning about community resources, and understanding the advantages of evidence-based health programming, you can partner with other community stakeholders to extend your professional reach in helping people age successfully.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Define and understand population health, health promotion, and the evidence-based model
  2. Explore the advantages and disadvantages of evidence- based health promotion programming
  3. Learn about resources for finding evidence-based health promotion programs in Minnesota.
